Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News’ ‘Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream’ To Discuss the Upcoming Manafort Verdict
According to Dhillon:
I think it’s a folly to take anything necessarily from the questions, and from experience we know jurors will ask questions and sometimes you will predict it will go one way but it doesn’t go that way for you. That said, it’s a good sign, that particular question I think would weigh in favor of the Manafort team. Some of the other questions however, would portend trouble, particularly details about the foreign bank accounts, what are these exhibits and what do they relate to. I think it is a bad sign for the prosecution. These questions cut both ways. If I were a smart attorney on either side, I would not be sleeping very well tonight.
Regardless of the outcome, I think the president is correct in what he has been saying. This is not about him at all, other than the prosecution itself of a decade old tax charge. It’s definitely about getting the president, Manafort didn’t flip, now they are pushing this to the end. Again, I don’t see how the prosecution wins when this is not going to the jury. So yes, they do have to be unanimous but it’s 18 different counts. You can see us but verdict here where he gets convicted of one are two things but not the bulk of the charges because they didn’t overdo it.
